The story contains all sorts of fun twists and quirkiness. The kingdom is ostensibly divided between those who are born Good and those who are born Bad. The Good are supposed to be good and the Bad are supposed to be bad, but much of the story revolves around demonstrating how those labels are artificial constructs. Gwen is a Good queen who doesn't to shoot those who threaten her daughter. Midas is a Bad criminal kingpin who would do anything to make Gwen and Avalon happy. The chemistry between the two is instant and hilarious as they negotiate their way to deposing the evil Good scarecrow and reclaiming Gwen's throne. There is plenty of action, betrayal, bloodshed, True Love, family, and some serious contract negotiations. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who likes to mix things up every now and then, just to see what will happen.
...and basically I TOTALLY agreed with her on this one. :) The world-building is wacky, everything about this story is wildly over-the-top, and yes, the manuscript could have done with a copyedit - but the whole book is utterly hilarious, adorable and fantastic and I loved every minute of it. I laughed out loud MANY times as I was reading, and I had a real chest-melting moment at the end as I took in the startlingly sweet message about created families.
(Also, if you like Ilona Andrews's books, you're almost certain to enjoy this one, because the writing style and sense of humor reminded me a lot of Andrews's work!)
A total comfort-read! And PS: this is Book 3 in the series, but not only does it stand alone perfectly well, I also think it's actually better to start here than with Book 1. I have now bought Book 1 (Wicked Ugly Bad) and am enjoying it, but I think I'm enjoying it a lot more *because* I read Kingpin first and got to thereby pick up on all sorts of fun clues in the first chapter of WUB that might have just baffled me as a first-time visitor to that world.
The plot was good but a little predictable. That happens when working from a fairy tale - the Hero and Heroine will have their Happy Ever After. However that said I liked the twists and turns leading up to the HEA. I really enjoyed that neither of the main characters made stupid choices that were only to further the plot. Their stupid choices/expectations were in character for both of them. The other thing I enjoyed was the use of the familiar names from the King Arthur stories. Nothing is really lifted from stories except the kingdom name (Camelot), that Arthur was the son of Uther Pendragon and was King and was married to Guinevere. Everyone and everything else Merlin, Avalon, Tristan, Percival, the Round Table (with slight spelling variations) shows up but has nothing to do with the Arthurian stories. It is rolling great fun.
I love how the guys in this series are the ones with the issues and their 'Good" women save them and are saved by them. Cassandra writes partnerships, but typical romances and I love it.
